Lessons taught by Neo #5


God said to Joshua as he was about to enter the Promise Land: “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Joshua 1:5

Neo is always loyal to us. He will never desert us to find “something better”. Even if we tried to leave Neo, he would follow us and find us because he loves us.

If we are feeling far away from God, we have moved…not God. God will truly never leave us or forsake us. That is a true statement spoken by the Creator of the Universe. It is true whether we feel like it’s true or not; God’s Truth is greater than our feelings. Just as Neo would seek us out and find us if we ever left him, God will continually pursue us and press into us because we are his children. He loves us; this is the one thing in our lives that will never change. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Loyalty to God and each other produces:

· Focus on God alone

· Commitment regardless of circumstances

· A shared heritage and a strong foundation

· Security when life is changing

· A picture for others of a true “Christ-follower”

Father God, our Rock, You are incredibly faithful to us. We want to be faithful to you and others. We are lazy. You are loyal. We are fickle. You are firm. Thank you for never giving up on us.

We need you.
